Commercial litigation expert expands the firm’s partnership to eight
A commercial litigation expert has expanded an Auckland firm’s partnership to eight.
Keegan Alexander has promoted Amanda Hyde to partner. She commenced in the new role on 1 January.
Admitted to the bar in 2010, Hyde started her legal career at the Ministry of Justice. She then practised at Chen Palmer, with a focus on public law, before moving to Keegan Alexander in 2013.
“In her seven years at the firm, Amanda has worked tirelessly in key roles in a wide variety of challenging cases. She has a genuine enthusiasm for legal practise, and an unwavering commitment to client service,” the firm said.
Hyde has extensive experience, including in general civil litigation, IP, public administrative law, extradition law, and trusts and estates. She practices primarily in the High Court, the firm said, but she has also appeared before the Family Court and District Court, as well as argued in the Court of Appeals and Supreme Court. She recently appeared in the Supreme Court for two defendants in the Dotcom litigation.
Hyde joins Andrew Barrett, Peter Spring, Peter Napier, Frank Rose, Matthew Pasley, Sean McAnally, and Crossley Gates in Keegan Alexander partnership.
